Q: What is the maxium punishment for Grand larceny with Afcf? What if the individual has 17 years of probation also?
A: There’s not enough information to answer your question with specificity. Grand larceny has different grades of punishment based upon the value of the items stolen. With the prior felony conviction it could be a dramatic difference in the ranges of punishment. If you’re already on a long suspended or deferred probation they have a lot of leverage over you in that you have clearly violated probation and are not entitled to a jury trial in that case. They can put on an application hearing, prove you violated your rules and conditions of probation in about 10 minutes, and then the judge could sentence you immediately to prison (even while you’re waiting trial on the new charges). You need to consult and retain a seasoned trial attorney immediately to protect your rights.
